Montgomery, Alabama – Samuel Washington Jr., 51, of 3435 Doris Circle was charged with murder in the death of Jerome Herman Adams, 45, of Hope Hull.

Both men have extensive criminal histories, and illegal narcotics were found on the ground next to the victim when officers arrived, Maj. Huey Thornton, police spokesman, said.

Washington’s criminal record includes theft- and drug-related offenses, and Adams also has faced drug charges in the past, court records show.

The killing apparently stemmed from a dispute between the two involving $200 Washington suspected Adams of stealing from his garage, Thornton said.

Officers found Adams about 5:51 p.m. Thursday lying in front of a residence in the 3400 block of Doris Circle. He was bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head. More on Montgomery Advertiser
